Another Lie Down and a Cry

This could have been a Tindersticks double header, but I can't find my copy of No More Affairs (7", so I won't have sold that one). Here we have perhaps the most English possible heartbreak song. The sentiment is worthy of a Graham Greene novel (you know the one). He sings that he can live with the fact that his lover might be cheating on him, and he doesn't really want to know, just as long as they don't leave. Sound like any other song you know?

Listen: The Tindersticks - The Not Knowing
